Meghan Markle was targeted in a fake anthrax attack when a package containing white powder and a racist message was sent to her and Prince Harry, her fiancé.
The powder, which turned out to be harmless, was sent to the couple at St James’s Palace last week, causing a security alert and triggering an investigation by the Metropolitan Police’s Counter Terrorism Command. The letter also contained a racist message, Scotland Yard said.
Specialists were called to check the material, which was intercepted before it reached the couple. The letter is understood to have contained a racist message, reports said. Ms Markle, is from a mixed-race background, hence the threats being received by the couple. The letter was intercepted before it reached the couple.
